Laff of the Day

There’s an article in today’s NYT re. how the Republican presidential field is shaping up for 2012. Here’s what State Senator Kent Sorensen of Iowa had to say:

I don’t want to bash Sarah Palin, but she lacks substance.

Hmmm… I agree – she does lack substance. Perhaps all Republicans aren’t completely batshit insane after all… Mr. Sorensen then continues:

I believe Michele Bachmann has more substance.

Mr. Sorenson is a leader in the Tea Party “movement” and presumably unfamiliar with the concept of irony. Or substance.

And lest we forget, here is Rep. Bachmann being substantial.
